Thought for Today: “Worship Moves Us to Serve”
Our worship of God challenges us to fulfill God’s Great Commission to share the good news of Jesus Christ to everyone.
The prophet Isaiah heard such a call in the midst of worship.
“I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me’” (Isaiah 6:8)
Worship always results in service. The Lord was looking for a messenger. And Isaiah, who is now forgiven and cleansed, volunteers.
Notice something, Isaiah didn’t say, “Here I am,” which would denote his position or location; rather he said, “Here am I.” This is a subtle change of vocabulary, but one that means everything. What it signifies that He is offering himself for service. He is offering himself as that living sacrifice that the Bible speaks about.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable act of worship.” (Romans 12:1)
Isaiah was willing to serve, not out of obligation, but out of a desire to exalt God’s glory. That’s a true heart of worship.
